Dawn to Sunrise - 9 August 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

2년 전

The forest fires in the western United States are adding to the red tint of the morning sunrises.

Photographs taken on 9 August 2018.

Sunrise Video

As the photographs were stitched together into this video, I noticed a slight shift from one frame to the next. The photographs in the video cover a 17 minute time-frame.

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a short 3 minute 43 second video. Music: "Morning Mood" by Grieg.

Dawn to Sunrise Photographs in Sequence

Dawn: The period of the day when light begins to appear in the sky from the sun.
Sunrise: The time when you first see the sun in the morning.

To give you an idea of the when the photographs were taken I am adding a T-time. T-0 is sunrise, T-10 is 10 minutes before sunrise, and T+5 is 5 minutes after sunrise.

These photographs have not been software enhance. You are seeing what the camera and I observed.

This is a representative sample of the photographs in the video.

When I think about how wonderful it is to capture these moments, I often realize how little I had to do with making these wonderful moments. For I am just the guy behind the camera.

sun so wonderfuly! ❤ wonderful golden colors, love it.
this is really beautifully taken 👌 Breathtaking! love your video too

@etcmike, It's really unfortunate to hear about the fire in the Forests and nowadays fires are increasing with rapid rates.

And in this month only we heard lot of fire incidents and in my opinion it's not good at all and nature is really getting hurt.

And in these pictures, it's reflecting as something RED stuff is coming out from the clouds and creating great essence.

And in my opinion that red part is reflecting as an Portal is opening to an Fire World and that's an unique scene.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂


Here is an interesting (7 minute) video I watched on the frequency of fires:


First of all thanks for this reference and i want to say that, it's truly informative and out of Traditional Repetitive News.

For sure 8094 state fire incidents saying the real story and for sure we cannot blame nature for this. And some Researches say that Global Warming is just became an excuse point and when some researches performed Experimentation at Antarctica then there is no affects of Global Warming was subjected.

Climate Change also is an subject which we can understand but cannot fully derive or define it because the natural aspects are not in our control and specially weather is dynamic.

But the key point which i want to highlight is Humans increased on Wild Land by 1000%. If we can aside the subject of Global Warming then we can concentrate upon some practical points which is done by the humans. Specially here people are living in wild land and in my opinion humans from long time following one point and that is, they claim everything as them means, they are forgetting that we don't have ownership upon anything but yet people are hurting mother earth and nature through all kind of acts and specially the Deforestation and if we will going to increase cutting of trees then for sure we will going to receive more and more heat and in the name of development we are constructing buildings and whatever we want anywhere we want. For example, we have mobile and when we over use it we will going to feel the heat but, if we have cover for our mobile then for sure heat will be there but we will not going to feel the heat, same way in my opinion we are removing the nature's cover through our greed and domination.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed.


In the western United States there used to be better "land management" which included controlled burns and timber harvesting. Even the indigenous Indians used to do controlled burns as part of their culture of land management. Nature actually uses periodic fires to promote a healthy forest. There are seeds for reforestation that are only activated by fire.
When the well-meaning and overly enthusiastic "tree huggers" protested to stop timber harvesting and controlled fires, that is when the fires had more fuel to burn more intensely.

I find it ironic when the intensity of the fires can be linked back to the very people trying to keep the forests pristine.

The native Americans in the western United States found the right balance for land management.

The biggest problem in the United States right now is regulations being made by people living in cities and not by those living on and off the land. Most Americans in cities have no idea of how to fish, grow vegetables, or milk a cow. Ask a child in the city where chocolate milk comes from: if they do not say from the store, they will often say from a chocolate cow.

It seems the further people get away from the land, the worse we manage the land through regulations made by people who could not live off the land.

I have said this before, here is my thoughts on climate change:
Climate change is real. The climate is always changing. The climate is dynamic, always seeking to maintain balance over long periods of time. The climate oscillates as it adjusts to many factors. The oscillation causes droughts, ice ages, periods of warming and periods of cooling.

Have a great day!
Steem on,


Yes, these information and words are really worthy to read and specially I've heard about the oscillation for first time and researched about it and it makes lot of sense.

But i always think that, something is kept hidden from human beings and slowly we are moving towards the truth. And in my case i personally observed that, the frequencies and vibration levels also got changed and our body can feel that, i don't know about others but lot of changes i am observing when it comes to the Frequencies too.

Solar Storms Affect Heart Health


Great videos and for sure space aspects will affect us because in my opinion everything is connected with source of energy, in my opinion UFOs also helping us to convey some messages but we are avoiding it and we are behaving like those are just myths and whenever we see UFOs in any random videos or like that, they stay in alignment and may be they are aligning to give messages of space and giving hints of space and situations on earth, in my opinion we still lack lot of knowledge or in simple words we are kept in blind. Thank you so much for these videos. Stay blessed. 🙂

Wow..Really stunning and amazing shots taken at very right time which portray wonderful beauty of nature. Dawn time is really one of the best time for photography. Thank you @etcmike for sharing such landscapes with us.

Nice photography

Wow amazing wonderful video! Perfect music. Awsome photographs, great work.

I really envy your view every morning. If I build a house in the future I want a view like yours. It just looks so beautiful and amusing to watch the sunrise every morning. It's like if I were an artist I would paint each sunrise everyday. Thank you for sharing these amazing photos and a video of it! Have a great day! Hope to see more photos of the sunrise,


Before I contracted to have my house built, I spent a lot of time with locating the right place to build it and with the design of the house. Once I chose this location and had it secured, I added extra windows in the design of the house to take advantage of the great views.

Finding the right location is the first step in building a home. I found the process to be very enjoyable. I hope you do too.

Have a great day!
Steem on,


Wow, that's amazing to hear. I guess that's right looking for the right location before building a home maybe in the future when I grow older and if I'm able to save up. Anyway, thank you for the tips!


Very Nice

This is absolutely lovely! Thank you!

Great post

Hi @etcmike photos looks beautiful and very refreshing.
Congratulations for brilliant photography and well captured it, i hope i can captured same as you.

Hi Mike. Pity about the fires.
It is a very curious scene, because it really seems that the clouds were waiting for the sun to come out when they played, which they did when they left. I congratulate you and a hug.

Nice photography

After the rain,
The sun will reappear.
There is life. After the pain,
The joy will still be here.

I enjoyed the comments and dialog information as much as I did the photo journey!

another best landscape pic good

Incredible pics....
thanks for sharing.....

Mature and sophisticated composition, beautiful light and, of course, amazing landscapes.

Top-flight landscape photography requires a lot of time and patience…Evans has once again shown his ability to cover those bases exceptionally well.

Damn nice shots/clickz again...
Especially these all photography facinated me...

When I think about that sunrise that I woke up to that morning, I just feel like I got as close to nowhere as I could get, and found out that it was more of a place than anywhere I’ve been in a long time.

However, you're a great photographer...
Thanks for sharing this all extraordinary shots...

Damn nice video again @etcmike this is excellent. Especially these all photography are prosperous!

Each and each day we tend to area unit endued with on this Earth begins with one. we tend to might not nevertheless be awake, and it's generally hidden from read by cloud, however it's there nevertheless.

A sunrise is one in every of the foremost majestic spectacles we will ever witness. Its beauty may be a powerful force, one capable of conveyance its heat on the foremost hardened of souls. It conjures up, it energizes, it renews, it provides hope.

And this can be why sunrise is therefore lovingly spoken concerning. It hints at the chances that exist for United States of America if we must always reach out and take them.

It reminds United States of America that point is moving ever forward which amendment may be a constant of life.

Spectacular view
Thanks again

I really enjoyed your video/photography and, in particular, the way you have your video camera set up to give your viewers a good look at the scene you're shooting. This is really refreshing and much better than the endless selfie stick talking heads used by most vloggers. Your style allows the viewer to more easily relate to the comments you're making while going through the process of setting up the shot and I'm sure I'm not the only one to appreciate it.
Thanks, you've got yourself another new follower!

Keep moving forward!
Steem on!
